Just saw this over at Andrew's. I have a couple reactions:

1.) I'm sympathetic to white folks on this one. This is like when some fool from your local news affiliate goes to interview someone in a black neighborhood and they pick out the most ignorant fool they can find. That dumbass is then taken as representative for us all. Seriously White people, having seen this, you guys should have some idea of what we go through.

 2.) That said, this is why I think a lot of black people don't much care about racism as bigotry. I mean, seriously, these fools don't even really offend me. They've got much bigger problems than Barack Hussein Obama. I'm happy there will be less of these kooks on the planet. But in reality, is that what we were fighting for? This is the enemy? Really??
